A Sneak Peek at the Possibilities of Tim Holtz Grungepaper!


Well, needless to say, Tim Holtz has done it again....

One of the most talked about new releases at the CHA show is Tim's new Grungepaper (coming soon to simonsaysstamp.com!). It's kind of like Grungeboard, but thinner. It has the same grungeable, flexible, inkable properties as Grungeboard, but-because it is thinner-you can now use personal die cutting systems, digital craft cutters and paper punches on it! It comes is 12" by 12" sheets, too! We can't wait to get our shipment!

This fabulous quilt was made by one of Tim Holtz's friends named Kim. She is awesome! She took some of Tim's Grungepaper, embossed it with various Cuttlebug dies, then painted it with Adirondack Paint Dabbers, and then inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks! She sewed it together with a regular sewing machine and ironed it (yes - ironed it!). Just like a normal quilt is put together! She commented on how the Grungepaper worked just like fabric! I love the fabulous colors and the detail. Grungepaper is just going to open a whole new world to the
crafting industry!

Here's an up close and personal look to get a better idea of the cool details.

Be on the lookout for Grungepaper in our store. It is shipping soon and we will be listing it as soon as we get it!

In the meantime, all 24 of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads are sold in our store, even as a complete set -click here for the link! Every color of Ranger Adirondack Paint Dabbers are also available.

For a limited time only, also available are the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Storage Case and Tim Holtz Paint Dabber Storage Case. These items are only available while supplies last and are perfect storage solutions - and they look cool too! You can even use your Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks to add your own flair to them!

Let me know what you think of the cool technique shown above! I can't wait to hear about what the first thing is that you are going to try with Grungepaper! ~TERRA
